Ringo can do better. It also goes to show that even though you can fill a studio full of talented musicians, if the songs are not good, you’re not going to have a good record. It’s great to have Ringo record a John Lennon penned song called Grow Old With Me and have his old band mate Paul McCartney play bass on it. But come on, if you’re going to have him provide some backing vocals, let the man sing. They should have come up with more harmony parts and had Paul’s voice more prominent in the mix. On Ringo’s release Y Not that came out a few years ago, I was moved to tears when I heard Ringo sing with Paul on a song called Walk With You. Not the case this time around. What was Ringo thinking on the remake of Money? The Beatle version is awesome. Ringo ruins it here by running his voice through some weird effect that makes him sound like a robot. I already have a few forgettable Ringo discs on the shelf. I now have one more.

This is an absolutely wonderful release. This is Ringo''s best album since Ringo Rama (2003) and Choose Love (2005) both made with Mark Hudson. There are guest appearances by Paul McCartney, Colin Hay, Richard Page, Joe Walsh, Edgar Winter, Steve Lukather, and Dave Stewart. Standout tracks are a truly lovely cover of John Lennon''s Grow Old With Me with Paul McCartney on bass, and Joe Walsh on guitar; and Send Love, Spread Peace, written by Ringo and Gary Nicholson. This is one of Ringo''s best songs promoting Peace & Love. Peace & Love. Peace & Love. Peace & Love.

But it doesn''t matter how long it is...it matters most what it does to you! Ringo has made an awesome album with a little help from his friends namely Joe Walsh, Dave Stewart and Paul McCartney! The first song I appreciate very much as Ringo let''s Joe Walsh sing kind of a duet with him! It sounds good with Joe''s guitar playing as well! The third song is almost a Beatle reunion as John Lennon wrote it and Paul and Ringo play on it! The remake of a remake from the Beatles catalog called Money is also fantastic...totally redone for my ears to enjoy! Ten songs that hit on all cylinders! Buy it while you can!

I thought this was a dang good album. It''s got all the Ringo elements: a tour through three or four different genres, awesome collaborations, and a solid mix of new directions and classic Ringo style.

It starts with "Gotta Get Up to Get Down", a blues-influenced collaboration with Joe Walsh (they share writing credits, guitar, and vocals) and they gave an unknown a chance on keyboard a chance and this "Edger WInter" person did pretty good.

I''m not going write about all the tracks, but there are interesting ones.

"Grow Old With Me" is one of John Lennon''s last songs, and Ringo did it here with Sir Paul on backing vocals and guitars.

There''s a unique version of "Money (That''s What I Want)", the song that launched MoTown and was a hit for Ringo''s old band (something like "The Spiiders").

"Life is Good" is one of my favorites, although I can''t put a finger on exactly why.

And the album ends with a perfect "Ringo sings about Ringo" song, "What''s My Name", which also ended up the album name. It''s right up there with "I''m The Greatest" from his awesome album "Ringo". I love it when he does that, and would go for a compilation album of just those (I don''t think he''d ever release one, because if you put 10 of these together on one disc, the uninitiated would think "Oh, he''s gone and built a giant monument to his own ego").

One note: my particular CD was unbalanced. It was OK at normal speed, but my home music server has an LG BD drive that can read an audio CD at 52x, and I thought this disc was going to shake the machine apart.

Being a hard core BEATLES fan since the age of five (and that was in 1964, folks) and a very attentive fan of all of The Fabs solo work, I realize my opinion might be viewed as slightly prejudice.
Although I have acquired all albums through the years I will be the first to admit that there have been the occasional ''clinkers'' from each member.
However, in my humble opinion, this newest release from Sir Starkey his best collection of songs offered to us in quite a few years.
What makes this album special to me is that Ringo has written/co-written every song, with the exception of two. "Money", an early BEATLES cover and "Grow Old Along With Me" written by John Lennon and featuring bass and backing vocals by Paul McCartney.
Each song is also produced by Ringo and features a little help from his friends including his brother-in-law Joe Walsh.
From beginning to end this is Ringo''s best effort with great songs and a great feel.

Other than Grow Old with Me this is just another excursion into boring, vague, trite lyrics backed by utterly thoughtless, forgettable, melody-free music. Lots of guitar rides but they become annoying quickly when you realize they are just there to distract you from discovering there is nothing going on in these songs. Biggest waste of Paul McCartney in a recording studio ever. Inaudible background vocals and his bass is buried in the mix. Why bother. Ringo does sound like he''s having a good time, I''ll give him that.

"What''s My Name"? It''s unmistakably RINGO! Technically it''s Sir Richard Starkey or Sir Ringo Starr. Some are saying this album is short. As a reminder, The Beatles albums through "Revolver" were about 35 minutes and nobody said anything about that. This album ROCKS! It is one of my favorite Ringo albums. I know I have also said that about the last 2 albums but Ringo gets better with each album! He always manages to have a great group of friends who pop by the house to play on the record, which he recorded in his LA home studio. Every song is a keeper to this fan! Ringo''s version of John Lennon''s "Grow Old With Me" with Paul McCartney on bass is a great nod to John from his 2 surviving mates. Produced by "Double Fantasy" producer Jack Douglas the track, which was included on Lennon''s Bermuda demo tape that included the "Double Fantasy" songs, was unknown to Ringo before Douglas told him about it and got him a copy. John said on the tape "This one would be good for you, Ringo". Ringo was so touched John was thinking about him in the last months of his life that he said he had to do the song and rang up McCartney to play bass. The guitar riffs are fantastic and the keyboards sizzle on this album. It''s 5 Star(r) Ringo! I always look forward to a new Ringo Starr album because his albums are filled with feel good, hard driving ROCK ''N'' ROLL! KEEP ROCKING ON, RINGO!

When I reviewed his ‘Liverpool 8’ CD, I suggested that, approaching his seventh decade, we might not hear much more from Sir Richard Starkey, MBE. Nearly twelve years and four solo albums later, I can only hold my hands up and say I was gladly mistaken. Now, fast approaching his ninth decade, ably assisted by Joe Walsh, Edgar Winter, Dave Stewart and Paul McCartney, he releases his 20th studio album. GOTTA GET UP TO GET DOWN: Vocals by Ringo, Joe Walsh and Edgar Winter. Everyone’s using the internet, Twitter and Facebook doing their thing, whatever that ‘thing’ is; go and do something. There’s plenty of guitar on this rocking opener. IT’S NOT LOVE THAT YOU WANT: Don’t be miserable if you’ve lost ‘the one’; don’t run away from things, just get up and face the day. There’s always somewhere to help, but it’s up to you to find them. It’s a decent tune. GROW OLD WITH ME: Penned by John, sung by Ringo with background vocals and bass by Paul and what sounds like a [very] subtle bit of ‘Here Comes The Sun’ in the strings, all four are represented here in one way or another. It’s a shame his vocal has been autotuned and it’s a pity McCartney isn’t heard higher in the mix. Radio 2 may well play this. I still like it. MAGIC: In what sounds like a song for Barbara whom he never wants to let go, this piano led has a good tune to it and the simple couplets are easy on the ear. More good guitar too. MONEY (THAT’S WHAT I WANT): A delve into the past. Unfortunately, it’s been digitised and the synthesiser is out of place. He shouldn’t have gone near this, as it sounds more Flying Lizards than rock n roll. His vocal is also too far back in the mix. BETTER DAYS:A heavy sounding song about wondering what’s around the corner. It could even be about the trails and tribulations on the road to success. Some fell by the wayside but he hopes those who made it “still remain”. It’s a good use of 2:40 of the disc. LIFE IS GOOD: He gives thanks for what he’s achieved on this one. Even though you can keep telling yourself everything is okay, sometimes it’s not enough but when it all comes together, he/you/us can say that, well, life is good. THANK GOD FOR MUSIC: From Liverpool to L.A., there’s 78, 45 and 33rpms coming out of the radio to save you. It brightens up your life, and he was part of it. Far from the best thing here, I like the organ break. SEND LOVE SPREAD PEACE: A plea for planetary harmony by reaching out to everyone else, it’s been tried many times before but no one’s taken any notice. The shortest and weakest track on the album. WHAT’S MY NAME?: A real toe-tapper and great album closer, which would have also made a great opener, with the band shouting the answer when he asks the question. This is the ubiquitous song on most of his releases that mentions his past, this time from Paul to John, getting to number one and his later problems, but he’s still in the game. It’s strange that, much like Mickey Dolenz, his voice seems to have improved with age. Maybe it’s a drummer thing. This will be a crowd favourite when he performs it live (and he will). What might surprise many is that Ringo still has a lot of followers and, since the turn of the century, for me anyway, his albums have been getting better. Okay, they might not sell as many as his mate but I doubt that worries him, as I’m sure his annual statement from Apple pays the bills. And as he says himself, it''s what he does. He’s like an old friend who doesn’t change, and shows no signs of slowing down, and there’s something comforting in staying the same.

In einem Song murrt er kurz, es seien ja alle ständig auf Facebook, das war''s auch schon mit der Gegenwart. Die Lieder heißen programmatisch "Life Is Good", "Thank God For The Music" und "Send Love Spread Peace".

Good songs, well produced and some great musicianship. One moan would be his version of Lennon’s Grow Old with Me. I’m afraid Lennons cassette demo is miles better. But if you like Ringo this album is worth a listen
